Anthony graduated from the Pennsylvania State University as part of the accelerated Premedical-Medical Program and is currently completing his final year of medical school.

As a high school student, Anthony found great satisfaction in volunteering for hospice, tutoring previously homeless children, and helping establish student-orchestrated science demonstrations in his community. He also conducted biomolecular research as part of the Young Scholars Program, helped lead his local hospital youth volunteer program, and co-governed a council responsible for over sixty student volunteer organizations throughout Northern California. During his final year in high school, he interviewed at several BS/MD programs – including those at Hofstra, Union College, and the Virginia Commonwealth University – and gained acceptances to all of them.

While obtaining his undergraduate degree, Anthony performed genomic research at UCSF, earned minors in health policy administration and sociology, and explored local mountains and cave systems. During this time, he also began coaching students at PremedHQ, many of whom have now already begun their own BS/MD journeys. In medical school, Anthony loved learning about the interactions between physiologic processes more so than any one organ system in isolation. This prompted him to research the relationship between different genes responsible for disease, and ultimately, pursue the specialty of anesthesiology. Outside of his studies, he also publishes personalized children’s books for orphans, enjoys cooking French cuisine, and rides an electric skateboard.

One of Anthony’s greatest passions – in medical school, at PremedHQ, or anywhere else – is mentoring others. He loves sharing the process behind his own challenges and victories to drive the success of others, and hopes to continue teaching throughout his career.
